Why did the president Lincoln feel that the emancipation proclamation was necessary?

Privately, Lincoln always supported abolition, but he felt that he had to be slow about introducing it to the country for it to be accepted. His original political position was Containment, preventing the spread of slavery from the southern states. Once the war broke out, Lincoln devised the Emancipation Proclamation to lure the Southern states back into the Union, and to prevent foreign nations from forming an alliance with the Confederacy. In the event, the rebel states remained intractable, but the foreign powers remained neutral. With the above thoughts in mind, US President Lincoln had already made his personal view about slavery well known. Especially in the 1858 debates with Senator Stephen A. Douglas. It was only later in the Summer of 1862, did Lincoln begin his drafts on the preliminary emancipation proclamation. This was due to the fact that the war was not rapidly moving in the direction that Lincoln had hoped for. France and England continued to trade and supply the South irregardless of the proclamation. Basically, in Lincoln's mind the proclamation would be a war measure. And, even more radical Republicans in his cabinet advised Lincoln not to issue it for fear of how the slave holding border states might react.

How did people feel about the Emancipation Proclamation?

During the Civil War, when President Lincoln made his Emancipation Proclamation, reactions varied greatly. Critics and enemies in the South scorned the move and even ridiculed it, although most of the slaves (quietly) celebrated it. Some Northerners disagreed with it out of fear that it would lengthen the war unnecessarily. Most Northerners, however, rejoiced with the hope that, at last, freedom was going to become reality for all Americans.BTW, the Emancipation Proclamation explicitly freed no slaves at all in the few slave states still loyal to the Union (to prevent having them rebel too). It only proclaimed the slaves free in those states then in rebellion against the Union (where the Union had absolutely no power to enforce it). So the Emancipation Proclamation actually freed no slaves at all anywhere. The primary purpose of the Emancipation Proclamation was not to free slaves at all or even for US consumption, but as an instrument of international propaganda (particularly on the British who had banned slavery throughout the British Empire several years before, to cease support for the Confederacy and support only the Union) and it worked in that purpose.

How did Britain and France feel about the emancipation proclamation?

Frustrated. By issuing the Proclamation, Lincoln had turned the war officially into a crusade against slavery (which it hadn't been at the start). This meant that free nations abroad could not send military aid to the Confederates without looking pro-slavery.

To make the North feel they were fighting a crusade against slavery. (It didn't.) To keep Britain from supporting the Confederates, as it would have made them look pro-slavery themselves. (It did.)

Why did Lincoln feel it was necessary to free the slaves?

Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation was a symbolic gesture. It only freed the slaves in the states which had seceded from the union and were no longer under control of Lincoln's government. Lincoln was not a abolitionist and he had stressed the need to preserve the union as the main rationale for the War. The proclamation surely appealed to abolitionists in the North and assured them that winning the war would end slavery in the old slave states. As such it served to solidify the war effort. There may have been hope that a slave revolt would occur in the South or that the threat of such a revolt would demoralize the South.

In the state of North Carolina can you move out and get emancipated at the age of 16 years old?

You need emancipation first, then move out. The courts will decide if you are old enough to get emancipated, they have a minimum age (15 in many states) but it doesn't mean you can get it. If they feel you are irresponsible, then they will deny you emancipation.

Why did the draft along with the emancipation proclamation anger many northerners?

The draft went down badly with the rank-and-file, and the families of the draftees, because it was allowable for a young man of military age to pay a substitute to do his service for him - if he could afford it. This seemed unfair, and the substitutes ere mostly useless. The draft also went down badly with many of the newly-arrived Irish immigrants, who were seeking a better life, and objected to being conscripted into a war about which they knew and cared little. The Emancipation Proclamation failed to make the North feel patriotic, and the Abolitionists objected to it because it allowed slavery to continue in the slave-states that had remained loyal.

After the Battle of Antietam Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation which did what?

It 'proclaimed' freedom for all slaves in Rebel States (over which Lincoln had no authority at that time) and sounded like a human rights appeal, to make the North feel it was fighting a crusade against the evils of slavery. In fact, it was an urgent signal to Britain and France that they could no longer support thew Confederates without looking pro-slavery themselves.

Why did Lincoln wait until after the union victory at the Battle of Antietam before announcing the emancipation proclamation?

While it was drafted in July of 1862, Lincoln was advised against issuing his famous Proclamation until after the Union won a major battle. Antietam was the largest battle in the war up to that point (remaining, to this day, the bloodiest single day of combat on American soil) and while the Union won due to a technicality it was enough to make the Proclamation feel like a term of victory rather than a last-ditch effort.

Why did the british feel the proclamation was critical in their rer relationship with the Native Americans?
